Stateside for Monday, Jan. 27, 2014
President Obama is set to deliver his sixth State of the Union address tomorrow evening. From the auto industry to the Great Lakes, just what should you be listening for?
And there was a lot of talk about a new bridge between Detroit and Canada, but has the momentum slowed down? We'll ask Michigan Radio's political commentator Jack Lessenberry about the holdup on the New International Trade Crossing.
And the state and national GOP chairs have now called on Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema to resign his position.
Agema stirred controversy after making anti-gay and anti-Muslim comments.
Late Friday, Agema issued a statement acknowledging “errors in judgment,” but says he won’t resign.
This has many people asking what Agema’s comments mean for Republicans, particularly for Muslim or gay members of the Republican Party.
Joining us now is Joe Sylvester, chair of the Michigan Log Cabin Republicans. Log Cabin Republicans are people who work within the party to push for equal rights for gays and lesbians.
